Easiest way is to put filters on your header row and when you want to find a phone number click the drop down arrow on the header and enter some of the phone number digits into the search bar.

I'm using Excel 2010... I would highlight the header cells I want to add filter to, select the DATA ribbon and click the FILTER button. This will then add filtering to the highlighted cells.

To use this see picture attached.

Hi,
You can have loop to scan through the Worksheet and check if the cell is having numbers inside and is with length like 8 digits.
Use numeric is check if cell value is numeric.
